How a Mobile Site Differs from Your Regular Website
If your website is not mobile-friendly, your website will likely take longer to load on a mobile device and will not display the entire site within the mobile screen without scrolling. This inhibits the users experience in navigating the website quickly to find what they are seeking.
With proper set-up, when someone finds your website using a mobile device it will intuitively show them the mobile site and the full version if on a computer.
